250 New Emojis Coming Soon

Unicode, the official keepers of emojis, announced yesterday that they’ll be adding around 250 new emojis. The Washington Post has a pretty complete list of what you should be seeing and I’m personally excited for a weight lifter, derelict house building, man in business suit levitating, clamshell mobile phone, reversed hand with middle finger extended, and dagger knife. Unfortunately they didn’t bother to put in important stuff like multi-ethnic emojis so that it’s not a bunch of white people.

There’s still also no taco, though Chris Rushing did a nice job of mocking one up. Just a heads up Chris, real tacos don’t have lettuce in them : \
